New Survey Finds Employees Ask for Community Outreach Reboot


Tuesday, August 8th, 2023

In the 2023 Business Generosity Report by goBeyondProfit and Georgia CEO, Georgia employees clearly indicated their shifting priorities regarding the most important demonstrations of generosity to the community.

Sustainability efforts took a leap into the top three ways a company should care for the community in this year’s survey. 61% define sustainability efforts as some level of “green” business practices, such as offering environmentally friendly programs at the office (38%) or investments in renewable energy or environmental projects (23%).

Other Opportunities for Employers: 

  • Employee Matching Gifts Programs: 77% of employees are looking for these programs from companies, but an alarming 67% of executives say they do not offer it at their companies. 

  • Greater Autonomy in Volunteering: 78% of employees prefer PTO to volunteer when and where they want, compared to company-sponsored volunteerism.
